A dependent clause always depends on a main clause. Therefore, a dependent clause never occurs alone. Comparing a main clause to a dependent clause, the verb in a dependent clause is always placed at the end of a sentence.
Die Pizza, die auf dem Teller liegt, ist verbrannt. - The pizza, that is on the plate, is burnt
Der Kuchen, der ausgestellt ist, sieht schön aus. - The cake, that is displayed, looks good
A conjunction is connecting words, phrases or clauses.
Wir nehmen es mit, denn wir finden es schön. - We're taking it with us, because we think it's pretty
Wir nehmen ein Taxi oder den Bus. - We're taking a cab or the bus
Wir brauchen kein Tee, sondern wir wollen Kaffee. - We don't need tea, we wont coffee
